A previous owner has electro penciled his name on the right side of the barrel beneath the British proofs (only visible when the slide is retracted).  This rifle has been carefully checked for signs of salvage or refurb (none found), and is exceedingly scarce and in very high demand.  There are very few as-issued early wartime M1 Garands remaining (especially as pristine as this one is).  Not import marked.

U.S.A. Second Model Remington Rolling Block split-breech (aka "Dog-ear") carbine (56-.50 Spencer caliber) mfg. by Savage Repeating Arms Company in 1865This is a very rare U.S. military carbine that was authorized in October 1864, but arrived too late  to be issued during the U.S. Civil War (1000 were delivered in September 1865, the remaining 14,000 in March 1866). Remington then bought back nearly all 15,000 that had been produced, and in 1870 resold them to France (at a respectable profit) to see service in the Franco-Prussian War and very few made it back to the U.S.A (they are rare in France as well, however, due to German confiscations during both WWI and WWII). This carbine has seen quite a bit of use with the external metal (which was not blued, but case-hardened) having mottled surfaces (but no rust).  The bore has very pronounced rifling but isn't very bright, and the action is completely functional.  The stock is surprisingly sound with very BOLD U.S. military cartouches on the left side of the butt. The buttplate is stamped US and just above that is a copper plate stamped 129 (likely a rack number).  Very rare, not import-marked   PHOTOS . . . $2400.    Antique, no FFL required

PRUSSIAN Model 1809 smoothbore single shot muzzleloader infantry flintlock musket # 15 (.72 Caliber) mfg. by Potsdam in 1809 and converted to percussion in 1828.  Very Good  PLUS condition with most metal finish intact on all metal parts. Smoothbore barrel is not too bad considering its age, stock is very sound but is cracked on both sides at the wrist. Action is still very tight and functional, and there is a very good possibility that this could have been used by the South in the U.S. Civil War (as so many were). PHOTOS . . . $1250.     Antique, no FFL required 

U.S.A. Model M1 Garand semiautomatic rifle # 1977668 (.30-06) mfg. by Springfield Armory in September, 1943 with original SA 9-43 barrel.   Excellent condition with most Parkerized finish remaining on all metal, bore appears to have seen extensive use during its time in service  (TE = 6.0, MW = 3.0) but is is still very bright and strong.  This rifle has all-correct WWII-era SA-marked parts with uncut op-rod and lock-bar rear sights. Walnut stock and handguard has several dents and dings with two gouges on the left side (this sounds worse than it is as the wood is sound and quite attractive) and a very weak but unquestionably present SA / GAW cartouche. Overall a nice correct example of a WWII Garand..  Not import-marked, not a CMP rifle but not a restoration either, includes data-sheet. PHOTOS . . . $1575.     C&R

Model M1 Garand semiautomatic rifle # 2812950 (.30-06) mfg. by Springfield Armory in May, 1944 with original SA 4-44 barrel.   Excellent condition with full light gray Parkerized finish remaining on all metal, bore is mirror-bright and quite strong (TE = 1.25, MW = 3.0) and has all-correct WWII-era SA-marked parts with uncut op-rod and lock-bar rear sights. Walnut stock and handguard has several dents and compressions (none of major size) and a very clear SA / GAW cartouche. Not import-marked, overall a nice correct example of a WWII Garand..  Not import-marked, includes CMP certificate of authenticity and data-sheet. PHOTOS . . . $1850.     C&R
